Cerf painting. It was all charity of course, but I wonder
what he ever did with the darn thing!
The girls raised thousands of dollars with this stunt.
It was a very successful function.
A great idea.
Yes. It was great, but you can't do it twice. Somebody
tried it again, and it didn't work the second time. It
was just the novelty that put it over.
You're not going to get the people to do the paintings
a second time;
We have some of the paintings to this day. I bought
John O'Hara's, and I bought Deems Taylor's. They hung for
quite a while. I guess that we've put them all aside now.
They were amateur dabs, but it was fun.
